So if you’ve noticed I’ve kept up my ongoing food budget on my blog to see how I do without the pressure of a month-long project. You’ve also noticed, I’m not doing very well–already $65 over just 10 days into the month. Right now, I’m spending a lot at Whole Foods–plus two $20 dinners out (which isn’t too much of a problem). Looks like I was celebrating a little too much with fancy foods after an entire month of holding back.

I wanted to post this because I wanted to call myself out–and then see how I can fix it. There are three weeks left in October, so that’s plenty of time for me to bring more lunches into work, go through my pantry for dinners, and cut down my eating out until I’m back in the green. So here goes–let’s see how it turns out.
